Been hard at work the last 2 weeks redesigning my website – http://www.garytymon.com – As always I needed a refresher course on html and css! Anyway, its up now and working. Have totally redesigned the look of it, its now a black and white design to reflect the pencil artwork and the caricatures and airbrush have been retired, its now solely a pencil commissions website with a prints for sale section. I have also added twitter so I can post when my new artwork becomes available.
I now need to get some sleep…
Heres a recent website i designed for Mick Moss woodturning, specialising in vases, goblets, bowls, stained and burrs work, clocks and lots of other things made of wood. Check it out at this link – http://www.mickmosswoodturning.co.uk
Christimas is nearly round the corner, which for means lots of eating chocolates, drinking lots of booze and vegetating infront of the tv. Currently not doing any new artwork pieces as im designing a couple of websites, one for M.D Woodturning which specialize in various wood pieces such as vases, goblets, clocks, bowls and stained work. Heres a sneaky peak at the homepage.
The other website is for my own pencil portraits and oil & acrylic paintings which hopefully will be going live in the next week or 2 and will put the links up for both websites when they are finished. After that its back to work on commissions and new artwork prints, hopefully doing a few more black and white portraits which seem to be going down well.
Halfway through the final artwork for the wine book illustrations, will post those when ready. In other news… 2 wild cats made home in the garden last year and have had kittens and we now have a cat invasion going on, 1 ginger one and 2 black ones, and lots of other cats that keep wandering in, 6 in all. RSCPA have been called, no one has turned up yet, bloody useless. Anyway, heres the mother with 2 kittens licking some milk i left out for them, and the black one in the background is nervous Neville… whose abit nervous.
Sunday – the day of rest. Was good to see Man Utd get stuffed last night by Barcelona in the champions league, Alex Ferguson didnt look too happy :o( and Doctor Who is getting more and more confusing – apparently Amy Pond is a ganger and has been since episode 1 when the Silence kidnapped her and shes now imprisoned in a pod somewhere and theres a woman with an eyepatch involved and shes having a baby and i dont know what the hell is going on… brain is frazzled. Anyway, summers nearly upon us, heres hoping for some glorious hot weather and not too many wasps please. As for the artwork currently have a couple more pencil portraits to complete before i start on some book illustrations week after next, 30 ish loose cartoony illustrations for a wine themed book, here are some of the rough designs i’ve been sent to transform.
Going to be doing them in a very simple and cartoony style like the Cover of the Connells album ‘Fun and Games’ and will post when i make a start. Also will be doing a couple more caricatures, not decided which ones yet but might do a Katy Perry or Cheryl Cole, and maybe a Shaun of the Dead or Blackadder IV. Also a Bruce Springsteen black and white airbrush will make an appearance at some point. Anyway, back to being a lazy arse for the rest of day…
